Student Awards and Recognition

At our school we have many positive achievements to celebrate. Visit this page to learn what great things our students are up to.

 THE SCHOOL LETTER SYSTEM

In order to encourage student participation in all areas of school life, BCSS. has a school letter system. Three general areas will be recognized by their own letters – Academic, Athletic, and Citizenship.

Points will be awarded for participation and achievement under each category, and a record kept while each student is at the school. At the end of each school year, the points earned will be totaled and added to the previous year’s total. In the fall, each student will then be able to know how he or she is progressing toward achieving a school letter. Generally, students will not be able to accumulate enough points until they are graduating.

To recognize students who stand out in all three areas, BCSS. awards the BRAMPTON CENTENNIAL SECONDARY SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT AWARD. In order to win this special recognition, a student must be a winner of one of the letters (Academic, Athletic, Leadership or Citizenship), plus must have accumulated at least 64 points in each of the Athletic or Citizenship areas or 6 Academic points. We hope that students who excel in one area will be encouraged to actively participate in the other two important areas of student life in order to win this special award.

Students are responsible for keeping the record of their Citizenship points up-to-date and accurate by submitting the Point Record Form, signed by the sponsoring teacher, at the end of each year.

i)The Academic Letter                                                                                

A student who maintains an honour average (79.5-100%) for any six out of eight semesters, or eight out of ten would qualify for the Academic Letter. A point system will be used granting one point for honour standing. The total points necessary to achieve the Academic Letter would be 6 or 8 respectively.
